    also, scoring touchdowns and not field goals or punts makes the other team one dimensional and puts more pressure on them. i really believe that with an improved offense will allow our defense to get back to it's suffocating ways...

    Ain't that the truth! No longer settling for FG's is so important it's not even funny. The redzone offense was flat out mediocre at best last year. That's the number one thing I want to see out the new Todd Haley offense.

    The Steelers were 17th in the league in scoring Touchdowns. They were also just 16th in the league redzone scoring attempts, which means they were middle of the road when it came to actually throwing the ball into the endzone or trying to run it in from short yardage.

    The defense keeps up with AFCN standards.

    To be honest, I've always liked watching teams with a scrambling QB go five wide on the goal line. To a degree anyway.

    I agree about Hampton being over valued the biggest thing about last year was that we had horrible turnover ratio if we got one timely turnover in the Second Raven game we win . Same with the Texans game A LATE TURN OVER SWINGS THAT GAME TOO .Then we would have been 14-2 and never played the Broncos.

    so again i think if our d can get some int's and fumbles we will be fine and control the game with our running game we will go 12-4 13-3 something like that if not maybe 10-6

    Excellent point about the NFC East. I have us at 10-6/11-5, not set on one just yet.
    Offense will need time and I believe the defense will as well. This team has loads of talent but youth in many key areas that will make us or break us. Either way I just don't see this team with the schedule it is facing winning more than 11.

    I honestly don't see how anyone can say that this team didn't get better in the off season. That said, schedule and getting comfortable with a new system will factor into record.

    I say 11-5, and improving as the playoffs come up, then anything is possible.

    Three keys to the season for me......

    1. The offense learning a new offense is the number 1 factor.........I hope the transition is a smooth one and really the offense starts to roll by week 4..........

    2. The offensive line.......No doubt DeCastro and Adams are talented but they're still rookies so there will be growing pains.......Another factor is its going to take some time for the best five to get into sync period.......I'm hoping by mid-season this OL starts dominating....

    3. The health of Manny Sanders.......Mike Wallace will play this year and I have no doubt in my mind about that........Wallace and Brown are one of the best starting combos at WR in the NFL....But a healthy Manny Sanders can really make this WR core special......Sanders in the slot......Who is going to cover him?.......I expect a huge year out of Sanders if he remains healthy all season........

    I'm not to worried about the defense....I think there is still a ton of talent and vet experience so the defense should still be very good......

    The kicking game scares me and really the kicking game could make the 2012 season a nightmare scenario....lol
